GFINITY Spring Masters I was originally announced in January and had a prize pool of $20,000. However, in late February, it was announced that the prize pool had been increased to a huge $50,000.

  • 2nd: $15,000
  • 3rd: $7,000

With the dramatic final of ESL One Katowice, people are excited to see whether Ninjas in Pyjamas can finally bounce back from their recent streak of making it to major finals, only to fall at the last hurdle. Some huge teams are taking part in GFINITY’s event but a lot of them haven’t won a major title in a long time. Allu picked up the pace and performed well in the final of ESL One Katowice but can he continue the momentum going into this tournament?

All GFINITY CS:GO events this year will be hosted by the highly-respected Scott ‘SirScoots’ Smith. The event will be held at the GFINITY Arena in Fulham, London and will be open to spectators, so if you don’t want to miss out then get your tickets here!
